Today the village celebrates its craft history and serves as an idyllic home and workspace to over 100 artisans, designers and artists. You can visit their studios and take a class to learn a new craft, or purchase designs and artworks from the numerous boutiques in the village. As the industry changed, so did the uses of the buildings: the laundry is now a cafe serving Finnish delicacies, the granary operates as an exhibition space, and some of the workers' tenements have been turned into bed & breakfasts.
